I newer felt a need for one but I do change bikes every 2 years or 25k km.
Motorracing Company in Raisio (Turku) is an official KTM service shop might ask them too if you want/need one.
Never had any work on my bikes done there but have bought a lot of riding gear from there and seam good to deal with.
The question i posted in the forums about a manual chain tensioner was real(not filler)
I email motokiedas(they dont stock), emailed bikeworld(no reply).
Do you know where i can get one from locally? or you think its not needed.
Im about to have a look at the valve clearances and replace the rocker arms(21,000km), i figured i would ditch the stock cam chain tensioner.
It's quite hard to up the tune so you get 20% more power... unless you strap a turbo on the bike... so not really an issue.
I newer did a "muutoskatsastus" on any of my bikes no matter what I changed on em.
Cops don't really tend to care about the bike mods unless it is an insanely loud exhaust.
My RC8 didn't have any indicators front or rear and no mirrors either.
Got a few tickets for speeding but newer even a comment about "missing" parts
Maybe I was just lucky.
The thing about performance mods is that insurance companies love to dig for reasons not to pay if **** happens so that would be the only reason to get official paperwork and inspection on mods.
Back in 2005 I had a Ninja which was heavily modified and only thing I ever got trouble for was the straight through exhaust
I do admit it was loud beyond stupid.
Ask your local dealer for a price.
Then just Google it.
Then compare prices and ask the local dealer for a better price.
It is a bit of a dick head move but I'd rather buy from the local shop (for a reasonable price) than the Internet because that way there still is a local shop there naxt year.
If the price is waaaay off than on line shopping it is.
